Mediation

Whether between family members, neighbours or co-workers, the potential for conflict is always present. Conflict is even more likely when tensions are high such as when spouses are separating or a death has occurred and there is a dispute concerning the will. Going to court is not only costly, it can put undue stress and strain on relationships where continuing civility and cooperation are critical, for example between two parties who need to co-parent after a separation or partners running a business together. In situations where everyone is willing to work collaboratively to resolve a conflict, mediation is the ideal course of action.

With a combined total of more than 40 years’ experience in family, civil, and criminal law, the SmithValeriote Law Firm LLP Mediation team supports disputing parties in coming up with mutually acceptable solutions that are legally sound and enforceable.

Our mediators effectively provide neutral, third-party facilitation in the negotiation of practical and reasonable agreements, either with legal counsel present or with the parties alone. If counsel is involved, we understand the importance of being evaluative in order to breach impasses and achieve a settlement.

As an interest-based negotiation, mediation can often resolve matters in a more efficient and fulsome manner. By allowing each side the opportunity to voice their needs and concerns and encouraging them to take ownership of the process, the outcome is more satisfying to all parties and easier to implement.

Through our extensive knowledge of the law and court system, we bring a deep understanding of the issues at hand as well as a direct and pragmatic approach to help focus on what’s important and realistic in a resolution.
